More about our guest presenter: Gordon Seyffert is a retired university staffer who was born in St. Louis. His ancestry is half-and-half German and British Isles. His primary interest is German genealogy, since several of his ancestors immigrated to the U.S. in the mid-nineteenth century. He is especially interested in migration, and the factors that cause people to relocate. Gordon says that he is a genealogist because he is a curious person who wants to know from whence he came. He categorizes himself as a life-long learner. He refuses to be intimidated by problems of unfamiliar language and culture. Gordon is proud to be a talented amateur who enjoys helping others. How far back has his research taken him? Far enough to explain who he is!
